陳承衛
CHEN Cheng-Wei

陳承衛,1984年出生於中國浙江洞頭,職業藝術家,現居北京。先後畢業於中國美術學院和中國油畫院,為中國當代著名具象繪畫代表人物之一。從小對神秘事物與戲劇性有著熱愛,從具象繪畫入手,吸收東西方古代的元素,將中國傳統文化里的多種符號融入到當代思維的情景裡,創作了「自畫像系列」和「大民國系列」作品。他在畫面中對於光線的巧妙安排以及構圖的獨特性,將人物內心情感傳達的淋灕盡致,這種與現代人不同卻又能影射現代人各種心理感受的畫面,帶給人們一種美的享受,一種追憶的美好感。

近年來,他自己也在探索的過程中挖掘出內心的真實感受,並吸收印象派之後的色彩和線條,傳承現代繪畫的精髓,將東方的壁畫,宗教藝術,唐卡等元素融入最新創作「花卉系列」中。這些生命之花不僅僅是眼睛所看不到的內在能量圖騰,也是致敬母愛及世間情感大愛的圖像。陳承衛展覽經驗豐富,作品被中國大陸、香港、台灣、日本、新加坡、澳門、西班牙、俄羅斯、法國、德國、美國、英國等地的重要藏家及機構收藏。

Chen Cheng-Wei was born in Dongtou, Zhejiang Province, China in 1984. He is a professional artist based in Beijing. Graduated from the China Academy of Art and the Chinese Academy of Oil Painting, he is now a representative artist of Chinese contemporary figurative painting. Having being fascinated with things of a mysterious and dramatic nature since childhood, Chen has delved into the world of figurative painting and absorbed Eastern and Western historic elements, integrating various symbols drawn from traditional Chinese culture with contemporary scenes to create his Self-portrait Series and Series on the Republic of China. His subtle arrangement of light and unique composition fully express the inner emotions of the subjects. These images that differ from modern sensitivity but capable of reflecting modern psychological states allow spectators to enjoy beauty and engage them in a pleasant nostalgic atmosphere.

In recent years, the artist has been steadfastly exploring his inner world and feelings and absorbing the varicolored palette and contour from Impressionism onward, hoping to continue the essence of modern painting while incorporating elements from Eastern rock wall paintings, religious art and thangka into his latest Flower Series. The blossoms of life not only embody invisible inner energy in totems, they are also symbols of the artist’s paean to maternal love and worldly affection. Chen’s works have been extensively exhibited throughout the world and have been included in the collections of important collectors and art institutions in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Macau, Spain, Russia, France, Germany, the US, the UK, etc.
